Nice looking entries for this one……..
Not for the first time this season, my attention is drawn to both A Momentofmadness, and Justanotherbottle. Both have paid their way for me this year, and Madness seems incapable of not giving it 100%, and I like him more and more each run. He’s becoming one of my favourites on the level. Bottle isn’t quite there yet, but I think he’s going in the right direction, and he really did everything right at York last time, and made the frame in a hot handicap. Both have time on their side, and I would just love to see the pair of them go at it from the front on Saturday.
There’s the slight concern, having had some those returns from them already this season, that the heart is ruling the head, in an ultra competitive handicap like this, and not to mention that neither is jocked up yet, and that both would have questions marks should it become too heavy.
It might make sense to wait until they’re declared, and get those 5 place concessions, but I’ll have a small early punt just now on the pair of them each way, as neither of them owe me anything this year.
Tough race as I mentioned, and one who might just struggle to get in, but worth keeping in mind for the consolation races at Ayr next week, is Huntsmans Close. 25’s here, but after being in the wilderness for a while, he looks as if he’s got some of his old zest back, and might not be a back number just yet.
I’ll stick with my pair though for now, and just hope one of them makes it at the very least.
A Momentofmadness 14’s

Move in time for me, into the 80s now surely he has to bounce back, the fact they havent retired him after his season he must be showing some spark at home!
25s will do for me, will probably get bigger on the exchange before the off i might have a nibble thenSeptember 15, 2017 at 13:25 #1317728

I am with you here Ham, and I haven’t checked yet but hopefully there will be five places on that race and at that price I think it is a very appealing each way bet for me. Good luckSeptember 15, 2017 at 13:27 #1317729

STAKE ACCLAIM for me in this. Ran well last time at Windsor when the race was happening away from him and won nicely before that at ascot in the Shergar Cup. 12/1 looks solid and unusually for me I am all in on just the one horse.
I am going to Donny tomorrow so the first race could decide my fate for the day LOLSeptember 15, 2017 at 19:21 #1317784

I probably won’t have a bet but for what it’s worth…
I thought Vibrant Chords was a bang solid fav and couldn’t really see it out of the 5. Also liked Merlin and Lancelot Du Lac at the prices.
Will just watch and enjoy.September 15, 2017 at 20:12 #1317794

I like last year’s winner Captain Colby but more so Compas Scoobid who is progressive.September 16, 2017 at 06:12 #1317847

Evergate @ 18/1September 16, 2017 at 12:32 #1317925
I remember backing a horse at 33-1 Ante-Post for The National, in January, and he eventually went off at 66’s FFS. I still consider that one of my worst AP bets ever, but at least I had 3 months for him to drift.
However, I only put Justanotherbottle up a couple of days ago, and he’s now 33’s FFS. That’s a fair old drift in anyones book lol, but I’m going back in for more lol
Good luck with the others guysSeptember 16, 2017 at 13:18 #1317943

I backed a few with SkyBet who are doing money back if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th.
I put Stake Acclaim up at 16/1 in the ante-post comp and really wish I’d taken the price then but alas I still think he’s one to keep on side with so have gone in at 9/1. I’ve also backed Spring Loaded (14/1) who looks primed to go close. He’s a consistent sort and I can imagine this is a big target for connections. And at 33/1 I couldn’t resist backing Duke Of Firenze. Finley Marsh’s claim means he’s quite fairly weighted and has still been running well enough this season to suggest he’s no forlorn hope.
Best of luck all.September 16, 2017 at 13:22 #1317946

Tough race. I’m going with Stake Acclaim at 12s.September 16, 2017 at 13:51 #1317954
Very tough Viktors, so I’ve added Vibrant Chords as a saver at 7’s.September 16, 2017 at 13:56 #1317957

That was a nice way to get the day started. And he bolted up didn’t he?September 16, 2017 at 14:18 #1317962

Nice one, Charles. Absolutely trounced them. Looks like one who everything came dead right for on the day or he’s found improvement and could be worth following. Well done.
Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the differenceSeptember 16, 2017 at 14:27 #1317964
Well played Charles, a very impressive winner.September 17, 2017 at 10:46 #1318079
